- According to a report from the Times Tribune, a Pennsylvania man has been charged with making threats to kill Barack Obama just before the President‚Äôs scheduled visit to the city of Scranton.
In a none-too-flattering indication of the man‚Äôs intelligence, police were tipped off when 42 year-old Nicholas Savino sent an email to the White House on August 16, detailing his threat, all justified by his apparent view that Obama is the ‚Äúanti-Christ.‚ÄĚ
Also tipping off police was a phone call from the Federal Aviation Administration regarding Savino, who had been denied a pilot‚Äôs license and had made threats in Oklahoma, his previous place of residence. He had been living in the Pennsylvania area for a year and worked as an engineer ‚ÄĒ which is bizarre because engineering requires a sufficient amount of logical thought.
A sample of Savino‚Äôs musings in the email are as follows:
President Obama the Anti-Christ. As a result of breaking the constitution you will stand down or be shot dead.
Yes, ‚Äúbreaking the constitution‚ÄĚ is a no-no when conducting anti-Christ business.
As Obama touched down in Northeast Pennsylvania, Clarks Summit Police and the Lackawanna County SWAT team paid Savino a little visit and seized a cache of weapons from his house. He‚Äôs now being investigated by the Secret Service.
If he‚Äôs convicted, Savino faces a maximum five years in prison ‚ÄĒ which begs the question; who‚Äôll protect us from the anti-Christ if he‚Äôs put away?
